I’m a makeup artist that has worked with Rich on several fashion & inspirational shoots. He is an amazingly talented person to work with! He is an extremely sweet, patient, and mellow person. Rich is also always up for trying new and creative shoots. And he not only handles every shoot with the utmost professionalism, but he takes his time to execute the perfect shot using his own lighting techniques.
As a makeup artist, I love the fact that his images are minimally altered/re-touched because it shows the natural beauty of person instead of looking overly photo-shopped.
I have also seen some photographers that focus too much on scenery, that they lose sight of the actual person in the photo. However, in Rich’s photographs I love that he makes the subject the main focal point. In fact, he focuses on bringing out the natural beauty of a person, rather than having them get lost in the background. If you look at his images, you can definitely see that he is passionate about what he does. And for that, I highly recommend him!
